Woocommerce multi vendor extension for WordPress

WooCommerce multi vendor extension for WordPress

The Product Vendors extension for WooCommerce provides your flexible functions  to turn your eCommerce store into a complete multi-vendor marketplace (such as Etsy or Creative Market). You can assign existing products to vendors, or the vendors can create and modify the products they have created – merchants will have a exclusive control page  on the site where they can list all of their products, but they will also show up in your normal shop pages so you can sell your own products alongside those of your vendors. To make the software more useful, the site owner have complete control over how much commission each merchant receives for a sale and you can even manually add new commission percentage/fixed one and edit existing ones.

As a administrator/site owner, you can also have access to in-depth reports on all sales made by vendors. You can view how much your vendors are making and how much revenue they are generating for you – these reports are smoothly integrated into the existing WooCommerce user interface, so you can view them easily and without any issues. Additionally, you can also use the product vendor plugin short codes to display their sales and earnings reports to your merchants.

Pros

  • Backed by Woothemes support
  • Vendor sales Report short code

Cons:

No front end control, vendors have to use the default WordPress Dashboard as vendor Dashboard functions

You can try it out here on the Code Canyon site.

  1. hi i am looking for multi vendor,,,is possible multi language? looking for translate it to portuguese, a single file only or multi files?

    ty

    • Junie Pigeon says:

      All of the software listed in the review page are fully supports the multi langauge and can be translated into any language (of-course it do support portuguese)

  2. I didn’t see any mention of allowing other templates in their documentation. Am I tied to this particular layout shown in this screenshot?

  3. I also need a full-width product page. Can I cut out the widgets on the side? Thanks in advance.

    • Junie Pigeon says:

      Layout(full width or column divided template) is fully depends on the template(woocommerce template) and not on the plugin(woocommerce product vendors).So you can reference the particular theme for the changing this(i hope most of the present day themes comes with the feature)

  4. I didn’t see any mention of allowing other templates in their documentation. Am I tied to this particular layout shown in this screenshot? And, is there an option of having new users sign up with subdomain.url.com, rather than url.com/user ?

    Is it possible to sell the same product for all the store but the store have their unique look and feel like just one store, not like amazone

    • Junie Pigeon says:

      As per now,this is not(unique design for every store) with woocommerce product vendors but it can be possible with Dokan(WordPress) or As per now,this is not(unique design for every store) with woocommerce product vendors but it can be possible with Dokan(WordPress) or Magento Marketplace (Advanced store branding options) .

      “Is it possible to sell the same product for all the store” – I think ,this is will spoils the multi store idea,because every vendor want to sell their own products they don’t to list the other’s products on their store(I didn’t find any shopping cart comes with these option)

    Hi

    I am currently evaluating Woocommerce, and would like to clarify if the following could be achieved with woocommerce.

    1) I want to set up a multivendor market place. Eg vendor name 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 10

    2) All these vendors sell the similar products so they will be categorized under the same products Eg: Product Categories A, B, C, C.1, D, D1, D2 etc…

    All these vendors need to be able to mange there own inventory, and view only there sales, and reports.

    Every time these vendors do a sale online, they would need to pay me a commission, which will vary from vendor to vendor, and based on product.

    I should have overall access to the entire system, and view all reports, commissions etc..

    The shop should be able to display products by category, filter by condition, or even view by vendor.

    In addition to this i will have customers who will sign in to the sight to purchase goods, etc.

    These customers need to have the option to post classified advertisements.. can woocommerce handle this as well or should i look at another plugin for this ?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks

      Question 1: “1) I want to set up a multivendor market place. Eg vendor name 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 10”
      Answer: Yes.you can create the individual store on marketplace on the vendor choosen name

      Question 2: “2) All these vendors sell the similar products so they will be categorized under the same products Eg: Product Categories A, B, C, C.1, D, D1, D2 etc…”
      Answer: Yes.As the vendor creates the categories for product listing,the products under the category(Products created by the vendors) will be listed on the same marketplace(Front end marketplace)

      Question 3: “All these vendors need to be able to mange there own inventory, and view only there sales, and reports.”
      Answer: Yes.Vendors has their own dashboard where they can manage the inventory and view the graphical chart and grid based reports about sales,product,customers.

      Question 4: “Every time these vendors do a sale online, they would need to pay me a commission, which will vary from vendor to vendor, and based on product.”
      Answer : Yes,assigning vendor specific commission is possible so as the site owner you can configure different commission rate of each vendors

      Question 5:”I should have overall access to the entire system, and view all reports, commissions etc..”
      Answer: Yes.you can.

      Question 6:” The shop should be able to display products by category, filter by condition, or even view by vendor.”
      Answer: Yes.Advanced product filtering option (By pricing,category or sub category,tag,vendor)

      Question 7: “In addition to this i will have customers who will sign in to the sight to purchase goods, etc.”
      Answer: Yes.You can configure either the buyers has to register with the site or use guest checkout option to make purchase.

      Question 8: “These customers need to have the option to post classified advertisements.. can woocommerce handle this as well or should i look at another plugin for this ?”
      Answer: But sorry no multivendor/marketplace plugin comes with the feature but you can use other wordpress plugin to do this.

      The good news is,most of your requirement(Question 1 to 7) is accomplished by the other possible theme (Dokan-Woocommerce Theme) or shopping cart(CS-Cart) but not with the woocommerce product vendors(This plugin missing lot of features or some advanced option which you require)

  7. I have one question though…

    Which of these offers per-vendor shipping?

    I mean, if you make an order from 3 different vendors in 3 different countries, there probably would be different shipping costs.

    Now, on websites bottica, and a few others, on the check out page, it groups the items per vendor. eg. 2 cups from vendor A, then 1 spoon from vendor B. There’s shipping cost, etc. and sub-total for vendor A and a separate shipping info, etc. and sub-total for vendor B, then a grand total at the end.

    Which of these plugins has a solution like this?

  8. hello. may i know wht is the theme used for bob's kitheb above there?

  9. Hello,
